The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Computer Science is designed so that students will have a foundation in a wide range of disciplines in the Computer Science and Emerging Technologies (CSET) fields.
Olivet Nazarene University offers a program that equips students for professional careers and develops innovative and problem-solving skills. Students in the Computer Science & Emerging Technologies department have opportunities to participate in numerous opportunities outside of the classroom such as programming competitions, presenting research at conventions, and networking with successful professional organizations.
Students take CSET core courses intermixed with courses specific to their concentration. CSET offers three concentrations to choose from in the B.S. Computer Science degree. These concentrations help narrow down a desired career path while still leaving room for other opportunities.
Software Development: prepares students for entry-level positions as software developers/engineers or to earn a graduate degree in Computer Science/Information Systems.
Software Entrepreneurship: prepares students for graduate studies and entry-level positions in information management, information technology, system analysis or data security.
Network & Data Communications: prepares students to enter Information Technology (I.T.) professions. Specifically concentrating on network and data systems, this program will provide learners with advanced concepts of data communications, packet switched networking, and interlaced with aspects of cybersecurity.
